He works as a Consultant in Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine at the Royal Derby Hospital and lives with his family in Leicester.

He also undertakes medico-legal work.

He offers the following treatments: nucleoplasty (alternative to surgery, minimally invasive treatment of a prolapsed disc), epiduroplasty (treatment of adhesions in the epidural space caused by previous disc prolapse or spinal surgery), radiofrequency treatment of nerves conducting pain, sympathetic nerve blocks,  neuromodulation techniques and medications. Dr Buczkowski accepts referrals from GP’s and from other Consultants. He is happy to conduct consultations in English or Polish.
